We like balloons. We like lights. Naturally we like these Memory Balloon lights by John Moncrieff. Designed by Boris Klimek, these are meant to evoke happy childhood memories. These also remind us of the glowing balloons by Kouichi Okamoto, with a key difference: no actual balloons are used in Klimek’s version. All you need to get one of these lights to billow up and illuminate your life is a standard bulb — fuss free.
